There is some discussion about

box!" chatterbox!" CHAPTER III
,. The Break Is Made.
And that's the way Nurse Sarah
finished her story, only she shrugged
her shoulders again, and looked back,
first one way, then another. Aa for
her calling me "chatterbox" she al always
ways always calls me that when she's been
doing all the talking.
As near as I can remember, I have
told Nurse Sarah's story exactly as she
told it to me, in her own words. But
of course I know I didn't get it right
all the time, and I know I've left out
quite a lot. But, anyway, it's told a
whole lot more than I could have told
why they got married inthe first place,
and It brings my story right up to the
point where I was born; and I've al already
ready already told about naming me, and what
a time they had over that.
Of course what's happened since,
up to now, I don't know all about,, for
I was only a child for the first few
years. Now I'm almost a young lady,
"standing with reluctant feet where
the brook' and river meet." (I read
that last night I think It's perfectly
beautiful. So kind of sad and sweet.
It makes me want to cry every time
I think of it.) But even if I don't
know all of what's happened since
I was born, I know a good deal, for
I've seen quite a lot. and I've made
Nurse tell me a lot more.
I know that ever since I can remem remember
ber remember I've had to keep as still as a mouse
the minute Father comes Into the
house; and I know that I never could
imagine the kind of a mother that
Nurse tells about. If It wasn't that
sometimes when Father has gone off
on a trip, Mother and I have romped
all over the house, and had the most
beautiful time. I know that Father
says that Mother Is always trying to
make me a "Marie," and nothing else ;
and that Mother says she knows
Father'll neyer be happy until he's
made me into a stupid little "Mary."
with never an atom of life of my
own. And, do you know? It does seem
sometimes, as If Mary and Marie were
fighting inside of me, and T wonder
which Is going to beat. Funny, Isn't
Father is president of the college
now, and I don't know how many stars
and comets and things he's discov discovered
ered discovered since the night the star and I
were born together. But I know he's
very famous, and that he's written up
in the papers and magazines, and Is
In the big fat red "Who's Who" In
the library, and has lots of noted men
come to see him.
Nurse says that Grandma Anderson
died very soon after I was born, but
that It didn't make any particular dif difference
ference difference In the housekeeping; for things
went right on just as they had done,
with her giving the orders as before;
that she'd given them all alone any anyway,
way, anyway, mostly, the last year Grandma
Anderson lived, and she knew Just
how Father ilked things. She said
Mother tried once or twice to take the
reins herself, and once Nurse let her.
Just to see what would happen. But
things got In an awful muddle right
away, so that even Father noticed It
and said things. After that Mother
never tried again, I guess. Anyhow,
he's never tried it since I can remem remember.

time up In her rooms in the east wing,
except during meals, or when she
went out with me, or went to the
things she and Father had to go to
together. For they did go to lota of
things, Nurse says.
It seems that for a long time they
didn't want folks to know there was
going to be a divorce. So before folks
they tried to be Just as usual. But
Nurse Sarah said she knew there was
going to be one long ago. The first
I "ever "heard of It was Nurse telling
Nora, the girl we had In the kitchen
then; and the minute I got a chance I
asked Nurse what it was a divorce.

she looked, and how she clapped her

first time I ever saw her give that

She's done It iots of times since.
As I said, she wouldn't tell me, so
I bad to ask some one else. I wasn't
going to let It go by and not find out
not when Nurse Sarah looked so
scared, and when It was something
my father and mother were going to
have some day.
I didn't like to ask Mother. Some
way, I had a feeling, from the way
Nurse Sarah looked, that It jvas goma goma-tnmg
tnmg goma-tnmg Mother wasn't going to like. And
I thought If maybe she didn't know
yet she was going to have It, that
certainly I didn't want to be the one
to tell her. So I didn't ask Mother
what a divorce was.
I didn't even think of asking Fath Father,
er, Father, of course. I never ask Father
questions. Nurse says I did ask him
once why he didn't love me like other
papas loved their little girls. But I
was very little then, and I don't remem remember
ber remember it at alL But Nurse said Father
didn't like It very well, and maybe
I did remember that part, without real really
ly really knowing It. Anyhow, I never think
of asking Father questions.
I asked the doctor first. I thought
maybe 'twas some kind of a disease,
and If he knew It was coming, he
could give them some sort of a medi medicine
cine medicine to keep it away like being vac vaccinated
cinated vaccinated so's not to have smallpox,
you know. And I told him so.
He gave a funny little laugh, that
somehow didn't sound like a laugh at
all. Then he grew very, very sober,
Tm sorry, little girl, but I'm afraid
I haven't got any medicine that will
prevent a divorce. If I did have,
there'd be no eating or drinking or
sleeping for me, I'm thinking I'd be
so busy answering my calls."
Then It Is a disease!" I cried.
And I can remember Just how fright frightened
ened frightened I felt "But isn't there any doc doctor
tor doctor anywhere that can stop It?"
He shook his head and gave that
queer little, laugh again. y
Tm afraid not," he sighed. "As
for it's being a disease there are
people that call it a disease, and there
are others who call "it a cure ; and
there are still others who say It's a
remedy worse than the disease it tries
to cure. But, there, you baby! What
am I saying? Come, come, my dear,
Just forget it. It's nothing you should
bother your little head over now. Walt
till you're older."
Till I'm older. Indeed How I hate
to have folks talk to me like that!
And they do they do it all the time.
As If I was a child now, when I'm
. almost standing there where the brook
and river meet
But that was Just the kind of talk
I got, everywhere, nearly every time
I asked any one what a divorce was.
Some laughed, and some sighed. Some
looked real worried 'cause I'd asked
it, and one got mad. (That was the
dressmaker. 1 found out afterward
that she'd had a divorce already, so
probably she thought I asked the ques question
tion question "on purpose to plague her.) But
nobody would answer me really an answer
swer answer me sensibly, so I'd know what It
meant ; and 'most everybody said,
"Run away, child, or "You shouldn't
talk of such things," or, "Walt, my
dear, till you're older"; and all that
Oh, how I hate such talk when I
really want to know something! How
do they expect us to get our education
if they won't answer our questions?
I don't know which made me angri angriest
est angriest I mean angrier. (I'm speaking
of two things, so I must, I suppose.
I hate grammar!) To have them talk
like that not answer me, you know
or have them do aa Mr. Jones, the
storekeeper, did, and the men there
It was one day when I was In there
buying some white thread for Nurse
Sarah, and it was a Uttle while after
I had asked the doctor if a divorce
was a disease. Somebody had said
something that made me think you
could boy divorces, and I had suddenly
determined to ask Mr. Jones if he had
them for sale. (Of course all this
sounds very silly to me now, for I
know that a divorce la very simple
and very common. It's Just like a
marriage certificate, only It unmar unmar-riea
riea unmar-riea you Instead of marrying you;
but I didn't know it then, And If I'm
going to tall this story I've got to
tell It Just aa It happened, of course.)
Well, I asked Mr. Jonea If you could
buy divorces, and if he had them for
sale ; and you ought to have heard
those men laugh. There were six of
them sitting around the stove behind
"Oh, yes, my little maid" (above all
things I abhor to be called a Uttle
maid!) one of them cried. "You can
buy them if you've got money enough ;
but I don't reckon our friend Jones
here has got them for sale."
Then they all laughed again, and
winked at each other. (That's another
disgusting thing winks when you ask
a perfectly civil question I But what
can you do? Stand it that's all.
There's such a lot of things we poor
women have to stand!) Then they
quieted down and looked very sober
the kind of sober you know is faced
with laughs In the back and began
to tell me what a divorce really was.
I can't remember them all, but I can
some of them. Of course I understand
now that these men were trying to
be smart, and were talking for each
other, not for me. And I knew It
then a Uttle. We know a lot more
things sometimes than folks think we
do. Well, as near as I can remember
it was .like this j;
